While the rest of us will be making a trip down to the local garden centre to pick up our Christmas tree for the season, Claridge's held a party to showcase its altogether different approach to festive decoration.
The luxurious London hotel had their own Xmas tree designed exclusively for them by John Galliano in his guise as Creative Director for Christian Dior.
To celebrate the elaborate tree which was surrounded by mannequins dressed in a special collection of vintage Dior archive dresses, Claridge's and Dior invited celebrity guests to join them.
Models Daisy Lowe, Jasmine Guinness, Ben Grimes and Amber Le Bon were all dressed up in Dior and looked suitably glamorous for the fashion-fabulous affair. Guests were treated to Moet & Chandon champagne, Belvedere Christmas Martinis and a selection of canapés including our favourites, Christmas macaroons!
